Coach D had profound and everlasting impact upon me. I am forever grateful to him, I am thankful I played for his hockey teams, and I will never forget his kindness, his humor, his passion, and the lovable man he was.

Rest In peace, Coach D.

Had a lot of good times while we lived next door to Pat and John.
Remember the time we were all playing basketball and John broke his ankle.
You will be missed old friend.
